Re: Dust-Free Remodeling


I have this shop dust collector from Jet for a long time but have ... no shop. http://woodworking.jettools.com/Prod...36K&cat=333122



So I plan to use just the blower, take out that dual inputs (4") to make it a 6" input as my air mover. Its specs says 1100 cfm. Wondering if that's good enough for a 100-150 sqft remodeling area.

Re: Dust-Free Remodeling


Oh btw, anyone else using www.dropcloth.com products? If so, which one and how durable are they? I got samples from them last week, and trying to compare between their products & those on http://www.protectiveproducts.com/productline.html

I run into cases where I have to cover the whole floor (12'-15' ect). Last time I used that red construction paper from HD, after 3-4 months at the job, I have to spend 1 1/2 week cleaning up.

Thanks.

Might be me but it was too narrow,
stuff got under it, and it moved around a lot.
Thinking about using regular vinyl runner, and holding it
with crown staples thru plastic caps?
(Like off of felt nails)

Ordered a week ago last Thursday,

Used @4" piece of blue tape on
each side on every tread (clear finished
oak treads), and just loose on the landing,
down the hall, and through the family room.
(All hardwood)
So far so good, lots of traffic from my
partner and I, as well as a couple of subs
checking things out after we opened the walls.
HO said they didn't mind leaving it in place
over night, so it's also surviving traffic from
two teenagers, associated friends, and 2 dogs.
Pulled and rolled it for the weekend and it
was good as new.

Summary:
So far it's a good product...
Lousy sales department!

About as much as I can say
except that I have reused
parts of them a couple of
times since.
Every thing they say it is.

Thanks Neolitic. I meant to ask which of the dropcloth (surfacePro, clean&safe pro, or clean & safe). I'm looking at probably the "Clean & Safe Pro" but debating which size to buy and how much for a safe quantity.

Re: Dust-Free Remodeling


I've used an old window air conditioner to create negative pressure in the rooms I'm working on. I put an extra filter on the front, just a piece of foam. Keeps the fine dust from drifting to other rooms in the house. I clean the extra filter once a day (okay I lie, I clean it when it needs it). This only works in the summer however.

We used to use a system like this. We lost the filter bag but the system worked very well when the bag was attached. If i remeber correctly our as about 7000cfm but they went over 20000cfm.

Hey, that little B I T C H fan is powerful! i have one the same size, but theres a problem with it, it runs fine for 10 seconds, then cuts off, starts again, any ideas?

If i could get that repaired and a sock for it, i'll be in business! (Where did you get the sock from?

Re: Dust-Free Remodeling


Besides what everyone else has mentioned, I use a higher end air purifier. I will usually put this in the area that I am not working in. Any dust that gets around all the plastic will get drawn into this air purifier/filter. Seems to work good. I think I spent around 200 bucks.

Re: Dust-Free Remodeling


Prob wont be worth getting anything like this in the near future if this stupid lead paint law comes through. All filtration will more than likley have to be neg pressure hepa filtration. Big Big bucks.

250-500 CFM is almost useless in most construction extraction work. You wanna be in at least the 5000CFM range to even attempt to pull a negative pressure enough to filter a room. But it does look cool lol

Re: Dust-Free Remodeling


I usually apply the sticky plastic then rip 1/8"masonite (untempered is cheaper - about $6 a sheet here in Houston) to the size of the treads and tape all edges to the sticky plastic. Measure the size width of tread minus 2" (leaves room for good tape adhesion on ends and deduct 1" on your depth so you can tape next to the riser as you flush tape the front edge to the tread. This method has held up great for us. You also may want to cover the rail wall or newels to avoid damage to sheetrock, bannister or post. I'm sure you get the idea. Hope this helps.
btw - its also a good idea to tape masonite to risers. We use a very sticky 2" wide packaging tape to make sure our tape doesn't come loose from abuse. Its available through Rusco packaging - 713 996-7478

Just had a bunch of concrete cutting done today and I can highly recommend the diamond blade wet saws that create slurry instead of dust, I'll post pics of the project in my other thread.

Re: Dust-Free Remodeling


Forgot about this thread. Here is the link for the fan and filter sock http://www.icscompany.net/confided_s...ation_syst.htm

I was also looking at this setup for far less money and thought about using a single bed sheet as a filter.

I currently use a hunter 90245 as a air mover for creating neg or pos pressure. It works great and fits in door ways really well.
